New ICS Ceiling Mount Loudspeakers Redefine Designer Aesthetics and Superior Sound

Unique design and advanced technologies in new ceiling mount loudspeakers blend seamlessly into any décor and deliver outstanding, predictable audio performance

Niles Audio Corporation, The First Name In Custom Installation®, has introduced its new ICS Ceiling Mount Loudspeakers, a revolutionary product lineup that offers an uncompromising combination of designer -oriented aesthetics, high quality sound performance, and ease of installation. Developed with the interior decorator in mind, each loudspeaker’s small footprint and low -profile, magnetically -attached grilles give the unobtrusive appearance that today’s customers desire.


“The new ICS Ceiling Mount Loudspeaker line addresses the aesthetic and acoustic challenges for a myriad of applications,” said Mike Detmer, president of Niles. “These loudspeakers combine Niles’ advanced engineering, modern materials and innovative design while providing appealing aesthetics, superb, predictable sound quality and ease of installation for IntelliControl ICS dealers.”


The new ICS Ceiling Mount Loudspeaker line consists of eight different loudspeakers -sold individually in 7” and 8” models -to give installers the ultimate in flexibility in multipurpose HD applications.


All Niles’ ICS Ceiling Mount Loudspeakers feature a unique, integrated custom -tuned Rear Wave Control (RWC) enclosure that ensures consistent, predictable audio performance while significantly reducing unwanted sound from bleeding into adjacent rooms. Each loudspeaker features a unique shape that easily fits through a cut out hole to greatly simplify installation, making it the perfect retrofit solution for any project.


The thin -bezel, ultra -low profile grilles -available in round or square -are magnetically attached, reducing installation time and providing a clean, crisp finish. The grilles are also rust -resistant, eliminating service calls for loudspeakers installed in moisture -prone areas. Niles’ patent -pending spring -loaded mounting clamps accommodate for a variety of mounting service materials; giving installers additional flexibility.


All ICS Ceiling Mount series features Niles’ patented and award -winning Directed Soundfield pivoting woofer and tweeter technologies, which enable the woofer and tweeter to be pivoted independently up to 15 degrees in any direction. Directed Soundfield technology allows professional custom installers to place the loudspeakers where they look the best in the ceiling and direct the loudspeaker sound into the optimum listening area.


The loudspeakers can also be specified along with the matching RWC surround effects loudspeaker from Niles to create a high -performance home theater system. Additionally, the loudspeakers have been voiced specifically to bring the best out of compressed music from sources like iPods, Pandora and Rhapsody while boasting the capability to handle more dynamic sources like Blu -ray discs.


All models are designed with a custom -tuned rear enclosure, and premium components, including copper caps, high -level crossovers, and Kapton voice coil formers to ensure exceptional sonic performance. For superior sound quality, the ICS Loudspeaker “Elite Performance” models feature Niles’ proprietary IMPACT (Improved Aluminum Ceramic Technology) driver material for the woofer and tweeter. The “SI” models include both a dual offset tweeter array as well as a dual voice -coil woofer to deliver stereo imaging from a single loudspeaker, making them ideal for applications that are unable support more than one loudspeaker.


Niles’ ICS Ceiling Mount Loudspeakers are available to select, pre -approved dealers only. For more information on Niles’ ICS Ceiling Mount Loudspeakers, please visit http://www.nilesaudio.com.
